The Falkoniergasse and Palais Kolle Belle projects are very interesting. It's nice that there still is courage to build blocks like that. Not everything has to be so sleek and glass&steel.

And the new U-Bahn stations are going to look very good too. Not as stylish as some stations are in Munich though.

Oh, and is the future of the Berliner Stadtschloss already clear?

Berlin Brandenburg - A Region Takes Off

Berlin Brandenburg



http://www.stadtentwicklung.berlin.d...index_en.shtml


The capital region has become a first rate location. A place, where politicians, managers and other opinion leaders are setting the course for the future of both Germany and Europe. A place, where art and culture are flourishing and where tourism has been growing in double figures for years.

This region attracts people from all over the world - and not just as visitors. Many are coming to settle here, because no other place can boast such an ideal combination of high quality of life, affordable prices and vibrant atmosphere. The new citizens add to the already amazing supply of labour, quite apart from providing fresh ideas - for media and IT, for art, culture und fashion, for high tech and science in Berlin and Brandenburg.

However the region does not live just in and for itself. Its excellent transport connections and central position provide a gateway to the new markets in the East. The new airport Berlin Brandenburg International will reinforce its role as a hub of international air traffic. This is of the utmost importance - and not just for commerce. The capital city is a magnet that attracts everyone - and the airport region is its most fertile soil for ideas and investment.

^^ Interesting and good news.

An general overview:



About BBI Airport:

Reasonably priced plots in all localities, available immediately, a well qualified workforce and an excellent, recently renewed, infrastructure all create first class opportunities for every type of commercial investment in the airport region. Four sunrise industries are offering particular growth opportunities.

Leading companies in the automotive and aerospace industry, rail systems, telematics and logistics create mobility solutions for tomorrow. From Bombardier to Rolls-Royce, from Daimler AG to its numerous suppliers - all profit from the location and form an established network that will continue to grow with the BBI airport.

At the same time the capital region is one of the leading Life Science locations in Europe. More than 100 research facilities, Europe's largest university hospital, and around 370 companies from the pharma, biotechnology and medical engineering sectors form a network that is regularly developing new products and methods.

Over 150,000 people have chosen jobs in creativity and communication in the capital region. Berlin now sets the tone internationally in fashion and music. More than 21,000 culture and creative companies are already benefiting from the advantages that are on offer here. The region is an international center of the gaming industry. It is also an ideal test market for IT applications and services.

The Cölln Fischmarkt with the new town hall constructed between 1710 and 1723 following Martin Grünberg's design. The Baroque Petrikirche is visible in the background (J.G. Rosenberg, 1784).

Showcasing Alt-Cölln

Archaeological excavations in this area reveal the vestiges of Alt-Cölln, one of the original settlements which constituted the medieval twin towns of Berlin and Cölln. The foundation walls of the Petrikirche, the town hall and the tombs of Cölln’s first residents remain embedded in the terrain. These testaments of the past are being scientifically examined and the finds recovered before the area undergoes redesign.

The exhibition illuminates the area's historical background and explains approaches to preserving archaeological landmarks. You will find information on the most recent finds and the supporting programme at the centre of the exhibition.

The plan foresees restoring the historic profile of Petriplatz and its perimeter structures, albeit with a contemporary design. Streets will be rerouted, utility lines relocated and new construction sites created to reclaim this urban space.

The exhibition provides information on urban development plans, projects for rearranging street layouts and the competition planned for reclaiming Petriplatz itself. The design of the square and green areas will incorporate traces of past epochs, i.e. the results of the excavations.

nice pictures !

One thing keeps on bugging me: I never read any plans to renovate the watertower , it is always about integration.

The question remains: who owns that tower , the DB ?
